Can My Employer Make Me Come In Early To Boot Up

Employee Rights Attorneys in CT


Yes. But they have to pay you for it.
Some employees – such as call center workers – use many software programs to do their jobs. Some employers require that you be at your desk with all systems up and running before clocking in. Under state and Federal law, this preliminary boot up time should be paid for by your employer because it is time spent for the benefit of your employer. Click here to learn more about a case The Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore is handling on this topic

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
